I want to introduce this Arabic sorting game as part of a blog hop with a friends. We are all sharing our favorite multicultural toys for children.
When my children were small, my parents brought them this Arabic sorting game from one of their many travels.
This game has been one of our favorites over the years. We love that it introduced children to a few words at a time to get them started learning Arabic.
The game comes in a self contained box for storage. It includes a lid that slides in and out and 8 slots inside.
It comes with five large wood pieces and forty small ones. The five large, long wood pieces have Arabic letters, Arabic numbers, shapes, food and animals on them. The smaller, square pieces have the same objects, only on individual squares.
To play this sorting game, place a large wood piece in a sliding slot on the lid, when the box is closed. You choose one of the smaller wood pieces and place it into the open slot. Here the number one is getting ready to go into the number one slot.
We also used to flip the squares over and play a matching game before we created our own last year.
It is also fun to play a color game, for example asking for the all blocks with the same color.
I have not been able to find the game anywhere. This is the product sticker on it, if anyone else can figure out what this company is.
